Since I am currently facing what you can call ‘writer’s/blogger’s block’ I am not going to posting for a while.
However, this is one book review I wanted to do and boy glad we bought the book 🙂 This post has been cross posted on Monday *Rolls eyes* on the IMC website. (http://www.indianmomsconnect.com/2012/12/17/the-pleasant-rakshasa-book-review/)
Before I review this book, let me confess, this is one book, I was looking forward to, but didnt really make an effort to buy. RD got this book for R via flipkart when he was ordering it.
and this is a book which I am definitely going to keep for my grandchildren. This is a book I would advice every parent to buy because here is a book who makes the Rakshasa into a pleasant person. Here is a book which teaches you that beauty is not about being thin, being pale or being hairless.
Here is a book which teaches you that big bellies are awesome, that big yellow teeth is what is needed for the perfect smile and hairy legs and dark skin define beauty.
This is a book, which teaches you that sharing gives you more happiness than anything else in the world. And here is a book which makes you feel that you should never be sad in the company of friends.
Written by Sowmya Rajendran and wonderfully illustrated by Niveditha Subramanium (yes both of them are authors of the famous ‘Mayil will not be Quiet’ ) the book is a wonderful addition to your child’s book collection.
R and I have read it like 100 times since RD got it for us. Yes, I must admit, after I read about it on Sowmya’s blog where she mentioned about it being realeased at Bookaroo, I wanted it. But I have been buying so many books for R, that I didnt order it thinking I will save it for a special occasion.
I am so glad RD went ahead and bought it for no reason. Because this IS a book which should be bought for no reason, no special occasion. It should be bought because it definitely deserves a special place in your book collection.
and oh! I loved that name ‘Karimuga’
